Air Bag Suspension System and Air Compressor for a 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty FX4


I have a 2022 F350 SRW FX4 long bed truck. When I tow my 42ft fifth wheel I am getting some drive away “shuddering” that I believe is the result of the drive angle and axle warp from the heavy pin weight. I have seen several forum comments that suggest airbags to correct this issue. So, do you think airbags will cure this problem? And, do you offer a kit that includes the airbags and on board compressor for my make/model of truck?


Expert Reply:

Yes, the shuddering you're feeling is being caused by the heavy tongue weight of your 5th wheel trailer. You will want to make sure your 5th wheel hitch is not over capacity because that could cause movement in the head as well. We do have an airbag kit and an on board air compressor for your 2022 Ford F-350 Super Duty FX4 long bed. It is the Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper Springs - Rear Axle item # AL55FJ. This air bags have a 7,500 lbs capacity and are compatible with 5th wheel hitches. The 7" Diameter LoadLifter 7500 XL air springs will upgrade your rear suspension
and give full-time load support without causing a rough ride when you're not towing. They will also level your F-350, improve braking and ride comfort, and reduce the strain on your factory suspension.

For an on board air compressor you are going to want the Air Lift WirelessAIR Compressor System for Air Helper Springs - Remote - Bluetooth - EZ Mount item # AL74000EZ. The WirelessAIR also automatically maintains pre-set air pressure levels and lets you adjust your two air springs independently. This allows you to level your truck from front to back or side-to-side for of off-center loads.
